Begin to draw + paint – Jan 2017

Begin to draw + paint: 14 – 15 January 2017

The begin to draw + paint course this weekend was great fun.  Loads of information, both practical and a bit of theory kept us really busy, but we still had time for a lot of chatting and making new friends, sharing stories about each of our creative journeys, and learning loads by the end of Sunday.

I had a very full studio with 9 students learning together.  All beginners, it was great to see them develop and discover new things along the way – new techniques, new materials, new methods of drawing and painting.

Here are a few quotes from the students themselves.  read on to discover what they thought about the course.
